>I can’t call it white bread: it’s half white, half wheat.
I can’t call it wheat bread: see above.
I do call it basic bread. It’s adapted (when do I ever follow the script precisely?!) from the original white bread recipe in the book that came with my breadmaker. Saturday I planned to bake it, slice it, then save it for French Toast Sunday morning.
Daisy’s Basic Bread for the Breadmachine
1 cup water (warmed for 30 seconds in microwave for best results)
1 1/2 Tablespoon oil
just less than 1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Tablespoon dry milk
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Add ingredients to breadmaker. Bake on regular course (not wheat), 1 1/2 lb. loaf size, with a light crust.
As with any homemade bread, keep this in the refrigerator. It’s a little stiffer than store-bought (of course!), so it’s good for many things beyond the PBJ. I like it for grilled cheese or French Toast because it holds up well to the olive oil or egg solution.
